Allergy Pillow Covers

allergy pillow coversMore than 10% of our population suffers from some type of allergy mainly due to the presence of dust mites.  Many of these suffers have chosen to use allergy pillow covers to help them sleep better at night.

Dust mites are these pesky little creatures that are cousins to ticks and spiders.  You’ll find them lurking in most bedding items such as mattresses, pillows, upholstery and blankets.

They maintain their existence by feeding on moisture and dead skin found in your bedding.  Dust mites do not feed on humans but you will find them in the vicinity of your beds.  Depending on the age of your mattress and pillow they may contain upwards of 10 million dust mites.

Allergy symptoms are not the caused by the dust mites themselves.  Instead, the allergy symptoms you experience are found in the dust mite’s waste protein and other body parts.  When you inhale this protein this is what aggravates your allergies.  Some symptoms that you may be experiencing if you suffer from allergies are a runny nose, sneezing, and itchy and watery eyes.  If you constantly wake up in the morning feeling congested every morning, chances are that it’s the dust mites that are the culprits.  Allergy pillow covers are designed to protect you from these pesky creatures.
